Utah Olympic Sport Clubs kick off another fun-filled summer with camps and programs for all ages. Utah Olympic Park offers multi-sport, freestyle, Nordic, and Bobsled/Skeleton summer programs including the new FUNdamentals + Science with Zaniac camp that teams up with Zaniac in Kimball Junction to provide a combination of multi-sport activities with engaging STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) programs.
The FUNdamentals Camps offer an unmatched multi-sport experience. With dedicated coaches, the camps reinforce physical education, agility, balance and coordination. Each camp features a different "sport theme" including baseball, tennis, swimming, karate, golf, skating and more. In addition to the featured sport, camp participants will participate in gymnastics, skate boarding, and art. Each camp session provides an opportunity to try freestyle skiing skills into the Aerials Pool at the Utah Olympic Park.
New this year, FUNdamentals + Science with Zaniac Camps offer all of the benefits of a multi-sport camp combined with a Zaniac STEM program allowing campers to exercise both body and mind. Participants can explore math and science applications through hands-on activities for half of the day and try a variety of athletic experiences for the other half of the day.
FLY Freestyle offers numerous opportunities to stay cool this summer on the water ramps at the Utah Olympic Park Aerials Pool. FLY Freestyle offers Learn-to-FLY Monthly Sessions for beginners, ages 7 to 10. For beginner to intermediate athletes getting started in freeride and freestyle, the FLY Summer Session provides 1, 2 or 3 day-a-week training as well as a 10-punch option. For those looking to try out freestyle for the first time, the Freestyle Intro Sessions, Signature Sessions, Mult-Sessions, and 5-Day camp allow athletes to get a feel for the water ramps at the Aerials Pool in a week or less.
Park City Nordic Ski Club had an exciting winter season and carries the momentum into the summer season with both cross country, ski jumping, and Nordic combined programs. The Youth Summer Ski Jumping & Nordic Combined program is tailored for athletes ages 7 to 12 that are interested in learning basic ski jumping skills. The Summer XC Devo program is designed for athletes ages 10 to 12 beginning to explore the specific sport skills in cross country skiing. PCNSC also offers opportunities for athletes in the next level of progress with development and competition level programs.
The ice may be out of the Olympic sliding track but that doesn't slow down G-Force—the feeder program for the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation. G-Force offers multiple combine tests this summer targeting ages 14 and up, June 5, July 31, and September 27. Three day push camps will be held June 5 to 7 and July 31 to August 2 in addition to the combine tests.
